president obama and speaker boehner are to a deal? and from your perspective, is a bad deal better than no deal? >> a bad deal is a bad deal and we shouldn't accept it. republicans have the problem that all of the polls show the vast majority of american people, and people who have done well in america should do well by america and start paying america back. this tax break, even george bush didn't want it to be permanent. somehow, republicans have gotten hung up on this one thing, turning tax law into theology. they can't let it go. it has united the democratic party against them, and now mostly american people are on the debate. we can't talk about spending until we get out of the corner. >> how much of the republican opposition is based on principle, to the raising of taxes on the weltiest is based on principle and how much is based on a fear that they may face a challenge from more conservatives in the party? >> i think it's impossible to know the second one. there are a number of people in potentially vulnerable situations where they have to look over their right shoulder and worry

without it. >> speaker boehner's counter offer yesterday to president obama which included a mythical increase in tax revenue of $800 billion obtained by reducing or eliminating unspecified tax deductions was taken seriously by no one in the senate except republican jim demipt. speaker boehner's $800 billion tax hike will destroy american jobs. the heritage foundation skewered the boehner counteroffer on its blog. at first blush, it appears little more than categorical preemptive capitulation. to be fair, the details of the republican proposal are extraordinarily vague to the extent it can be interpreted from the hazy details that it is utterly unacceptable. president obama said today there is a time and a place to discuss reforming the tax code. but that time is not now. >> what i've suggested is let's put a down payment on taxes, let's let tax rates on the upper income folks go up. let's let those go up. and then let's set up a process with a time certain at the end of 2013 or the fall of 2013 where we work on tax reform. we look at what loopholes and deductions both democrats and r
